Kellie Consort Reviewed

After many months of planning, August 1st marked the debut of University Organist Tom Wilkinson’s new Kellie Consort. The new Consort is Scotland’s only pre-professional baroque ensemble and takes its name from the 6th Earl of Kellie, composer, Thomas Erskine (1732-81). With music of the Baroque era often being underplayed, the Consort endeavours to spread this unique form to a wider audience around the country. This process began in St Salvator’s Chapel before the group transferred to Glasgow’s St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral and Old St Paul’s Church, Edinburgh on subsequent nights.
